Way back in October, we heard some vague rumors about a Sholes tablet due out in Q1 of 2010. The anticipated gadget was to pack a 3.7" touchscreen, 8 MP camera, and 720p video playback. At the time, most of us dismissed the tablet idea as farcical. Motorola was still in the process of rolling out the Droid, and the idea of a smartphone-sized mini-tablet didn't seem very realistic. But now we've got photographic proof of the gadget's existence. Mobile Android China (via Boy Genius) has several photos of the device. They claim it has the same 550 MHz OMAP TI processor as the Droid, a 3.7" touchscreen, HDMI port, 3.5 mm headphone jack, UMTS/HSPA, an 8 MP camera with Xenon flash, and Android 2.0. The gadget's design looks to have the same spartan, slightly overbuilt industrial feel of the Droid. No info is out as to cost, carrier, or what the perceived market for this strange little tablet will be. Since it's (ostensibly) due out in Q1 2010, we should be hearing more concrete information soon.
